Virtual Gala 2020

Thank you for your support!

Many thanks to all of you who joined our Virtual Gala & Silent Auction last night. Celebrating the work and impact of our honorees, Jared Saiontz with the Ruth T. Cornell award and Dr. Shahzad Mustafa with the John J. Condemi award was a great honor for us and we're very happy to share it with you.  If you were unable to join us, enjoy the video above. You can also find it on our Youtube channel.

With your help, we're able to continue supporting our allergy community with our two main programs, Epi Near You New York training program and promoting allergy supportive legislation in New York State.  Both programs will continue virtually until we can meet again.

E-Greetings from the Allergy Advocacy Association

August, 2019

End of summer greetings! For those with children in school, before you hear that wonderful sound of the school bus coming up the road on the first day, make sure you have connected with the school nurse, teacher, building principal, bus driver and coaches to inform them of your child’s allergies and what to do in an emergency. Read over carefully the doctor’s instructions given to the school nurse and make sure you are in agreement. For example, should Benadryl be given first for any signs of an allergic reaction, or epinephrine? We wish you a healthy, happy school year!

Be sure to mark your calendar for the second annual Rochester Allergy Awards Gala at ARTISANworks on October 10 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. We will be honoring Dr. Jeremy Thomas Cushman from the Department of Emergency Medicine at the University of Rochester Medical Center, and Jamie Kosten who saved the life of his father, a beekeeper, from a life threatening anaphylaxis response to bee stings.
